read, got about bills and productivity in this congress. >> yeah, so, only 219 bills passed into law in this congress, the lowest number that we've seen. and you know, but the thing that you have to understand, i think there's a lot of republicans who don't necessarily think that that's a bad thing. they think shrinking the government, making the government do less are actually good things. >> right, i don't think there's any question about that. we know there's an element of the republican party, ron paul, rand paul being the most visible, who think the less government does, the better. now, in that vain, i've been struck. david wasserman at the "cook political report" crunched the numbers on this, that there are 234 house republicans. 15 of them, 15 represent districts that president obama carried in 2012. given that, and we were talking with kelly about the fact that this has to come through the house at some point, that republicans still control. is there any reason for, politically speaking -- >> absolutely, right. >> -- not good of the country speaking, but politically speaking

, but the house of representatives and signed into law by the president. >> there's so many contentious details here. any one of them might trip this up, but there are two big pillars we're talking about today more than anything else. the first one seems to have been successful. it has to do with the idea of where you're going to put the threshold for maintaining the bush tax cuts. the republicans wanted to maintain the bush tax cuts for everyone. the white house said no, not for everyone. we want to do it for middle income people, but wealthier people can pay more. the president wanted to say anybody making over $250,000 as a couple in this country should pay more. they should go to a higher level of tax rates. however, the republicans by and large said they didn't want anybody to pay more taxes, but some said, if you're going to pay more, let's make it a million dollars a year or more. where we are is somewhere down around here, around $450,000 a year per couple. this seems to be largely one of the coups today where the parties seem to agree that this is the cut-off point. i say that tentativ
